Sydney Pre-purchase Inspection Process

Two main steps

The first step in the pre-purchase building inspection process is scheduling an appointment with a licensed building inspector in Sydney. You’ll need to provide detailed information about the property, including its age, size, and any specific concerns. The next step is the inspection day when the building inspector will conduct a thorough visual examination of both exterior and interior spaces as well as accessible areas like the roof or crawl space using specialized tools such as moisture meters, thermal imaging cameras, or drones if needed.


After the inspection, the inspector will create a detailed report outlining their observations and findings. This may include visual evidence and suggestions for needed repairs or other appropriate actions.


After finishing the report, the inspector will go over it with you to make sure you understand the issues and recommendations. With that information, you can decide whether to buy the property as is, negotiate based on any problems found, or ask for repairs before moving forward.

Environmental hazards: This can include issues with asbestos, lead paint, and other hazardous materials that can pose health risks to occupants.

We follow industry-recommended guidelines, which include basic protection practices and regular inspections, to ensure that your property is in optimal condition.
